C-Kore’s Subsea Testing Units Proves its Value for North Sea Operators
C-Kore Systems recently completed a deployment with DeepOcean AS for Equinor.
The C-Kore testing tools were used to quickly and simply confirm the status of subsea electrical jumpers on the Tordis field in the Norwegian waters of the North Sea. The C-Kore team provided easy to follow training prior to the mobilization to give the ROV operators a clear understanding how to use the units.
C-Kore’s self-contained and automated subsea testing units are used on both asset integrity and installation operations to verify the health of subsea electrical systems. The Cable Monitor unit tests the insulation resistance and continuity of the electrical line while the Subsea TDR unit localizes faults with an accuracy of around 20cm.
The ROV engineer for DeepOcean commented, “The C-Kore units worked very well. The ROV crew were happy with the training instructions they received from C-Kore prior to the mobilizations, and the units themselves were easy to use”.
Cynthia Pikaar, Sales & Marketing Director for C-Kore Systems commented further, “We are pleased to be working with both Equinor and DeepOcean in Norway. Our C-Kore tools are really proving their value to North Sea operators with their ease of operation. Being automated, they also don’t require extra offshore personnel, an added bonus in times where POB is kept to a minimum”.
C-Kore Systems is celebrating their second Queen’s Award for Enterprise, this time in the International Trade category. For further information on their innovative subsea testing technology, please visit their website, www.c-kore.com.
